Video Transcript for Curt Class I and II Pin and Clip Review

Speaker 1: Today we'll be having a look at the Curt Class I and II pin and clip that's 1/2" in diameter, part number F-4. If you have an 1-1/4" hitch and have any hitch-mounted accessories to go with it, whether it be for a Class I or Class II accessory, you're going to need a pin and clip to secure them to your hitch.What's great about this pin and clip is how easy it is to use. With the pistol grip design, it makes it easy for us to insert the pin or remove it when securing our accessories such as this ball mount here. Once we have the pin inserted, we can take our clip, line it up with the pin, push it in place, and that'll secure our pin and our accessory.What sets this pin and clip apart from others on the market is that we have this beveled edge right here to help guide the pin through our holes in our hitch and our accessory. So, if our holes aren't lining up perfectly, this will help push them together, making it go through nice and easily. Also, other ones on the market, the clip goes around the pin.

It doesn't go through it. I find that this is a more secure option and makes it easier to remove the clip or to install it. It'll even work great with a cargo carrier, and just like that, we're hooked to our cargo carrier. It's secured to our vehicle and we're ready to hit the road.Not only does the pin and clip work with our ball mounts and our cargo carriers like this one, but it'll also work our bike racks provided they don't have a threaded hole for an anti-rattle device, which they are kind of rare to see that but they do exist. Just as easy as it is to install, it's just as easy to remove.

We'll simply grasp our clip at the end of it, pull away from our pin, grab our pistol grip of the pin, remove it from our hitch, and then the accessory can slide out.Now for a few measurements of our pin. Our pin has an overall width at its widest points from the tip over here of 4". Our straight pin measurement from where it's straight to our hole where our clip goes through, the usable space that we have is 2-1/2". So what that means is with our 1-1/4" hitch as long as the hitch walls themselves aren't thicker than 2-1/2", we will have plenty of clearance for our pin to go through, securing our accessory to our hitch.Now, when comparing this pin and clip to others, such as the Draw-Tite, part number PC2, this one is a more affordable option and it's slightly easier to use because it has different design where the clip goes through the pin and not around it, and it also has more of a beveled edge, which makes it easier to insert the pin and the accessory in case the hole in the accessory or the hitch aren't centered properly. That completes our look at the Curt Class I and Class II pin and clip that's 1/2" diameter, part number F-4..

Rcvd my hitch today (one day earlier than predicted by etrailer when I ordered...well done!). Everything was received as expected/requested.
Crawled under the car and started installation immediately. Piece of cake really; although some people would struggle with the tight space, 13 year old car, and need to clean threads, and remove caulk/undercoat in order to achieve "hole alignment".
Hyundai also did a great job by having pre-threaded welded nuts in place.
So far.... a great product received in time to use this weekend (as was my plan).

Great job and great product by etrailer.
Also, the website was easy to use and the videos quite helpful.
I will be back!
Thank you,
2008 Hyundai Sonata

Hitch etc is holding up fine. Routinely used to pull trailers up to 2000 lbs with a 2008 Hyundai Sonata. I avoid going over 55 mph, or sway is detectable.
Frank - 10/20/2022


I am so glad I decided to do this. I am a novice and it took my a little longer to install it but I had no issues. It is very sturdy and stable. This allowed me to install a lockable bike rack for mountain biking trips. I have been using this for 2 months now on 7 or 8 mountain bike outings and this hitch is solid. Great purchase. Well worth it.


I ordered parts for trailer hitch and lights a year ago. My car guys installed it apparently with no problem. There was no problem with my order and the product has worked just fine. The hitch has been used to pull a trailer and to hold a bike rack. I am pleased! Thanks!


This company not only has a great product but a fantastic customer service department. We received a wrong item and within s couple of hours, we had a response and a replacement on its way!!!


Fantastic Product. Saved me from having to buy a brand new bike holder for my new car with a different hitch size.


Solid ball. I love that spring washer that comes with this ball. It locks in every inch of torque you apply.


Quick easy installation when less than an hour and a half basic tools little different than the video cuz it was a little bit different of the year but still just as easy looks great on the car highly recommended


It's a pin - pretty simple, for and works great for three Curt 1 1/4" hitch.


Great product, tho directions called for 19mm socket (actually uses 18mm socket). Installed in my driveway using common tools, and drove the rear wheels up on some blocks of wood to get a couple extra inches of space to work. I loved the 'fishing wires' that came with to get the bolts and spacers through the holes - how clever!


I installed this on my 2015 Honda Accord for the purpose of pulling my small aluminum fishing boat and trailer. Works great!


It is what it is. 5 stars for etrailer.


Can never have too many of these!


The hitch has worked great over the past year. I pull a 15 ft sailboat and I have had no issues. Customer service was great with a missing part and got it to me quickly. Would definitely purchase again!


The hitch fit and bolted up perfectly!


An awesome pin, probably the best pin on the market. Very happy with the quality and value.


Still clipped and pinned a year later


This hitch and collar is working great on our Honda Fit. We did have it installed by a mechanic because we didn't have the tools to do it ourselves. Now, we can bring our bikes with us on trips and other outings.


Heavy duty, quality product, arrived quickly, mechanic installed on a 2015 Camry with no issue. Great customer service experience, too.


Works Good, Lasts a long time.


Using this on my John Deere diesel Gator and it does a great job, is high quality, and was a great price. Service with etrailer is always fantastic.


Unfortunately this was missing from my package but it’s a x$ clip so how bad can it really be. Giving 5 stars because customer service was amazing to deal with.

We will get that right out.
-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 06/22/2022


No rust yet. Good pin


Works as it should.


High quality and does what it's supposed to do.


I always seem to miss place the pins so I got extra, the personal at rtrailer are great, Tammie you did a great job, that's why I keep coming back

  • Does My 2020 RAM 3500 Have Non-Standard Hitch Pin?
    We have never seen an 1/2" diameter hitch pin on a 2-1/2" receiver. They all have 5/8" standard. We only see the 1/2" pins on the small 1-1/4" receivers. I would measure your hitch pin carefully. Is it possible that everything is 5/8" but just has a loose fit? Hitch parts do not have tight tolerances and tend to wiggle and rattle a little. Most likely your setup is just fine.If the rattling becomes annoying you can always add a Trailer Hitch Anti-Rattle Kit for 1-1/4" Trailer Hitches,...

  • What Adapter Do You Recommend for Making a 1-1/4 Inch Hitch Take a 2-Inch Accessory?
    For this issue, I recommend the Hitch Adapter 1-1/4" to 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver # HTAD. From the pinhole to the end of the part that is inserted into the hitch receiver is just under 1-1/2 inches. We have had other customers with 2021 Volvo XC60s confirmed that the length issue was bypassed by this receiver. In order to know if it will work for sure with your hitch receiver, I recommend that you insert a tape measure into the hitch receiver and measure the length from the backstop to...

  • Pin and Clip That is 1/2 Diameter and 4 Long
    I'm not 100 percent sure what you mean by "latch pin or something" but I am assuming you mean a pin and clip, and we do have one that is 1/2" diameter and 4" long, the Curt Class I and II Pin and Clip # F-4. This pin and clip is a total of 4" long overall with a 2-1/2" long straight pin. The 1/2" diameter is standard for a hitch pin and clip for a 1-1/4" receiver so the straight part of these is not going to be as long. If you were looking for a hitch lock the longest with a 1/2" diameter...

The trailer hitch has a bolt-on installation with no welding required. It has a black powder coat finish that covers an e-coat base that offers a superior rust protection.

  • Why Does my 2 Inch Hitch have a 1/2 in Pin Hole and a 5/8 in Pin hole
    The Curt Pin and Clip # F-4 that you referenced is designed to work on 1-1/4 inch hitches. The reason your hitch has a 1/2 inch hole and a 5/8 inch hole is because it is setup for an anti-rattle device like the Draw Tite J-Pin # 63201. I attached a picture of this device being used on a hitch like yours for you to check out. I also attached a review video for this product for you to check out also. This 1/2 inch hole is not designed to be use as a hitch pin hole, you will want to use 5/8...

  • Compatibility of Curt Class II Drawbar # C45521 With OEM 1-1/4 Inch Receiver on 2012 Ford Escape
    The Curt # C45521 drawbar you referenced is compatible with a 1-1/4 inch receiver, as is the # F-4 hitch pin and clip. You'll want to make sure that the hitch on your Escape has sufficient capacity to handle the pop-up you're planning on towing. The first thing I'd recommend you do is to determine the capacity of the hitch. The hitch should have a sticker on it telling you if it's a Class I or a Class II hitch. A Class I hitch will have a towing capacity of up to 2000 lbs, and a tongue...

  • Best 1/2 Inch Hitch Pin that is Long Enough to Fit a 2 Inch Hitch Receiver
    Is there a threaded nut inside the shank of the bike rack? My guess is that is the case. I would need to know the bike rack manufacturer and the model though the model is not as important as the manufacturer. If you can tell me that information I can determine if we have the proper threaded hitch bolt for that rack. If it does not have a threaded hitch pin hole and the issue is length you can use the Curt Clevin Pin with Handle # C45805. This pin has a 6-7/8 inch usable span so it is plenty...

    The Curt Universal Fifth Wheel Base Rails with Installation Kit part # C16200 will work with any Reese 5th Wheel Hitch that mounts to ISR rails.

  • Hitch Pin to Use with Curt Hitch # C12264
    Hitch pin size doesn't matter that much I would say. As long as the pin fits through the hitch pin hole and the accessories hitch pin hole you'd be fine. That said, if you were looking at the Curt hitch part # C12264 the # F-4 is an easy solution for a hitch pin and clip.

  • Ball Mount to Use with Class II Hitch Towing Small Trailer
    Best option would be a ball mount that fits your Class II hitch directly and not to use a hitch adapter as they cut the capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. We have the Euro style Class II ball mount with part # C45551 which has a 1-7/8 inch hitch ball and a 2-3/4 inch rise. We also have a pin and clip with part # F-4 to use to secure the ball mount to the hitch.

  • Recommended Ball Mount and 2" Hitch Ball for 2019 Volvo XC60
    I took a look at the factory hitch for a 2019 Volvo XC60 and it appears that it will use a euro ball mount, the Curt Class II Euro Style Drawbar part # C45572 with Curt Class I and II Pin and Clip part # F-4. If you don't think this will work, please send photos of your setup so I can better understand the issue you are having.

  • Recommended Hitch Pin for 1-1/4" Class II Receiver
    It sounds like you're looking for a hitch pin for a 1/2" diameter as opposed to a 5/8" diameter; typically a 1/2" diameter hitch pin is designed to be used on a 1-1/4" hitch receiver. If you just need a hitch pin you can use the Curt # F-4. If you're looking for a locking hitch pin to keep your VersaHaul Carrier attached to your vehicle, you can use the etrailer # e98879. Both of these hitch pins are designed for 1-1/4" Class I or II hitch receivers. If you can tell me what vehicle you're...

    The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24925 you were looking at is confirmed to fit your 2021 Volkswagen Golf TSI and would be perfect for carrying a bike rack. This hitch includes everything needed to get it installed on your TSI, and the only thing you may need is a hitch pin if your Class I bike rack does not have one already. Typically these are included with the bike rack. Assuming that the bike rack in question uses a standard non-threaded hitch pin then I recommend going with...

Not only does the hitch provide you with 150 pounds of maximum tongue weight and 1,500 pounds of maximum gross towing weight, it also comes with a gloss outer coat over the base powder coat to give you ultimate protection against rust and corrosion.

    No, the Curt Class II hitch receiver # C12076 does not include a ball mount, hitch pin or clip.

I have included a link to our page for Class II hitch balls with the required 3/4-inch shank diameter (to match the supplied ball mount which has a 3/4-inch ball hole).

Keep in mind that you will need to use a Support Strap # 18050 for any non-trailer loads like a bike rack or cargo carrier when using this hitch per the Curt Warranty. I have attached a video of this hitch being installed on a 2014 Prius for you to reference.

  • Can Hole be Drilled in Trailer Hitch to Align With Ball Mount
    I do not recommend drilling a hole in a trailer hitch like the Draw-Tite # 76154 that fits a 2019 Nissan Titan as not only will this void the warranty but hitches have not been tested to be used after modification. A Class III, 2" hitch like the Draw-Tite is designed to be used with a 5/8" diameter pin and clip such as # PC3, while a 1-1/4" hitch will use a 1/2" diameter pin and clip like # F-4.
